Try an authentic Chicago Dog without a trip to the big city

Digzy Dogz and Grill recently opened up for the 2017 season on April 17th.

The mobile food service trailer is located at 8310 East 700 North in Hudson Lake.

Digzy Dogz is managed by Jason and Jenny Kazen, and is in its third year of operation. It originally opened at US 20 and Cougar Road before moving to its current location last year.

"The traffic just moved too fast, so we bought a vacant lot here," Jason said of the spot right across the street from the Hudson Lake stop on the South Shore Line.

Digzy Dogz serves up authentic Chicago style hot dogs and much more, all at affordable prices. "Because of our set-up, nobody can beat our prices," Jason explained.

He also takes pride in the high quality of the food they produce.

"Nothing here is processed, everything is all fresh," Jason said, noting that they use all Vienna Beef for their hot dogs.

The restaurant's namesake, the Digzy Dog, features mustard, onions, nacho cheese, and bacon.

Digzy Dogz also offers a unique two-fifth pound premium burger. With the exception of the kids burger, they are all double burgers.

"We don't throw a frozen patty on the grill and serve it up," he said. "Everything is hand-pattied."

Other menu items include Italian Beef, Chicken wraps, and an assortment of sides like chili cheese fries and onion rings.

While everyone in Hudson Lake knows about Digzy Dogz, Jason hopes people in New Carlisle will make the trip down to the lake to check them out.

"We just want people in town to know we're down here," he said.

While the food is served out of the trailer, Digzy Dogz has plenty of outdoor seating for customers to enjoy their meal in nice weather.

Digzy Dogz is open from 10:00am to 7:00pm Central Time on Tuesdays through Sundays until November 15.
